Nominate someone!!! Artists must live, work, or volunteer in Somerville, MA. Nominate someone whose work you admire!
Somerville is a land of talent. Since 2013, the Somerville Arts Council has been featuring a different creative Somervillian each month. See annual tabs above.
This series features a different creative Somervillian each month – painters, poets, song writers, you name it! The program is a way for us to celebrate the enormous wealth of talent in our city, by shining a spotlight on a different creative Somervillian on a regular basis. We’ll feature an interview with the Artist of the Month on our website, as well as images of their work. Each new artist will be announced on the first Monday of each month.
This series is inspired by the Nave Gallery's "Featured Artist" program, which ran from 2005 to 2009.
How artists are chosen All artists who will be part of this program live or work in Somerville, MA. They were chosen by a panel from a list of nominees; many of the artists were nominated by the Somerville community through the Arts Council’s website.
The series is organized by a whole raft of people: Coordinators Jenn Harrington (2013, 2014) Gilmore Tamny (2015--) and Kellie Veiga (2013), and Somerville Arts Council past and present board members Tim Devin, Valeria Amato, Matt Kaliner, and Michael J. Epstein.
